Translate it with Google's Chrome to English... Its broken, but comprehensible. Nothing new though. Strong front brake well into the corner, and rear throughout, opening fully at the end, and still applying rear to minimize slide.... That part is new.... From one of my times on DRZ, opening fully out of at tight corner, the rear will wiggle like crazy, making my own rear, pucker like crazy. HAHA!
The whole turning in on the front brake shenanigans is what makes my rear pucker, I do it, tentatively. That's how I nearly dropped the dearly beloved DT, huge handful out of the turn & then hard on the front brake... but the front was, er, light, so when the weight came on it dropped like a sack of tatties as I turned the bars. Very, very effective. Very hard for me to get confident with. This is where the tumbles start me thinks.
If the Aliens can turn hard on the front brake then surely we can, no?

I'm all inspired again Vulfy, cheers!

That bloke keeps the front brake on ALL the way through the turn...... Yeah, right, sure. OK.
